Chiffon Peter Pan Collar

I made this top years ago, and if I’m being honest, it looks much better left on the hanger! I remember making this, it was the last garment to sew up as part of my final major collection at uni. One day to go before the deadline, and I was still sewing. This top is made of chiffon and it is the worst fabric to work with. As floaty and dreamy it is, I will never ever use it again! If anyone’s been on an industrial sewing machine before, they will tell you how fast they go. Add emotional stress and silk chiffon to that mix and you’ve got a big mess! I was so stressed out at the time, I actually cried whilst I sewed this up – So dangerous! I am lucky I’ve still got all my fingers! I lived to tell the tale, and I lived to show you this outfit post! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

My little sis (she’s 13) did my hair here, she’s a Youtube fanatic and has learnt lots of new hair styles so I let her experiment on my hair! She’s so clever and I like the hair style she’s done for me here. I’m not very good with up-do’s! She also wanted me to show you all this video she recently found of a baby panda and a momma panda. It’s cute and funny. Enjoy!

    Sneezing Baby Panda makes an appearance in Going The Distance lol. Love the video it's very funny. I like the cross ring but it might be a bit over kill for me lol. I only wear three rings – my wedding, my engagement and my haematite thumb ring (which has gained a crack which is really sad)

    Such a gorgeous top, Sarah (: I studied Fashion & Clothing at college for two years where we worked with industrial machines, and I clearly remember using silk chiffon for a top that I "desperately wanted" in my collection, and satin for an evening gown. Such a huge mistake, I was close to tearing my hair out in the final weeks before our end of year catwalk! xx

  26. 26th August 2011 / 12:02 am

    Ooh the top is gorgeous Sarah! You're such a talented lil bunny! Loving the hair too, well done sister! x
